A recent installment of long-running syndicated comic strip “Six Chix” tackling anti-mask rhetoric from a Black Lives Matter movement perspective was pulled from some newspapers last Tuesday.
Founded in 2000, “Six Chix” is a collaborative comic strip that’s been syndicated daily to more than 120 newspapers, focusing on a broad range of topics from a woman’s perspective, including gags about breaking news, the economy and even zombies.
The group features a rotating team of female creators, including Bianca Xunise — the Chicago-based cartoonist behind the controversial edition — who became the first Black woman to join the team and second to be nationally syndicated in comics history earlier this year.
